Connecting, Engaging & Inspiring through Radio and Music Production




Lift Radio Drama from Sound Communities on Vimeo.



"Lift" was produced by young people at Ocean Youth Radio and broadcast live online and in front of a studio audience. Our young producers made the live sound effects and actors from Doorstep Arts devised and performed the drama. Ocean Youth producers also worked alongside Fotonow to learn how to create digital images and sounds to accompany the drama on social networking sites to help reach as many young people as possible.




  • To raise awareness about Child Exploitation
  • To show how local young voices can encourage their peers to make healthy relationships in the Bay

"You can tell them, but for them to see something like that they can say 'yes, mum was right'. It is performed by young people and that's important because another adult telling them is like mum and dad telling them that; but teenagers playing the role, very well, and the sound and the background and everything it is really well made. It is good. So we need more of this in Torbay. More awareness for the teenagers and their social network, so tonight, for me, it was really positive. I want more. More more."
